National Cross Country Finals

On Saturday 25 November the National Intermediate Boys Cross Country Finals took place at Sevenoaks, Kent. The team finished 8th in the country! There was lots of talent, heart and a real passion for running on show.

Their behaviour was impeccable and were all a credit to the school. It was a really enjoyable day and there were no delays.

The runners included:

  • Euan Duffin – 16th
  • Thomas Cunningham – 33rd
  • Dylan Davies – 47th
  • Ben Walker – 94th

Total of 190 points.

Other runners were Ben Waterfield 125th, Dylan Gooding 129th.

The boys were amazing and showed a real passion for running.  We are so lucky to have students like these in our school!

King Edward’s Inspires 2017

Once again, thanks to the huge support we receive from many of our alumni, businesses, colleges, universities and training providers, our annual KEVI Inspires event was a phenomenal success – the best one yet! We have a variety of exhibition stands, as well as an in depth workshop/presentation programme.

The event attracted support from a wide range of organisations from across various sectors and a wide geographical area, from London to Dundee! We are immensely grateful of the support provided and are proud that our school can deliver such a unique and valuable event for our students and their parents.

This year, we were delighted to invite colleagues from Berwick Academy Sixth Form and The Church of England Academy. We have developed a range of careers provision with these schools, as part of our work and inclusion on the National Career Benchmarks Pilot programme. Feedback from Berwick in particular was outstanding, with their Head of Sixth Form saying that her students are ‘talking about possibilities and opportunities they never knew existed!’ This really captures the essence of the event and is what makes it special.

Next year King Edward’s Inspires will be held on 22 November 2018 and we have already had pledges of support from many of the organisations present this year, which is phenomenal. Further developments next year could be the inclusion of a sector specific panel discussion with industry experts… watch this space.

Trust Expansion Consultation

Exit West

Ms Savage recommends ‘Exit West’ by Mohsin Hamid.

“In a city swollen by refugees but still mostly at peace, or at least not yet openly at war, a young man met a young woman in a classroom and did not speak to her.” The best book I have read this year – I wanted to buy it for everyone when I had finished it. The story is incredibly important for today and Hamid’s writing is evocative and beautiful, generating empathy that allows us to better understand our world.
